Peters, Adam M. Peters and Brandon F. Peters; two daughters, Raquel Villanueva and Mercede Landeros; 14 grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his infant son, Dominique Peters, as well as his parents, George M. Peters Sr. and Kathleen Peters.
His ashes will join those of his mother in Mashpee Cemetery.
A celebration of his life will be held at a future date.
